Georgia O'Keeffe Museum

“A little way out beyond my kitchen window at the Ranch is a V shape in the red hills. I passed the V many times — sometimes stopping to look as it spoke to me quietly. I one day carried my canvas out and made a drawing of it. The shapes of the drawing were so simple that it scarcely seemed worth while to bother with it any further. But I did a painting — just the arms of two red hills reaching out to the sky and holding it.” - Georgia O’Keeffe

Georgia O’Keeffe created a recognizable visual vocabulary throughout her career. She adopted a range of motifs from skulls and flowers to geometric shapes such as ovals, rectangles, and V’s.

Georgia’s V, one of her most persistent motifs, acts as a passageway for viewers. She gently invites you into her world.

As seen in the following photograph, Georgia explored places such as Glen Canyon with photographers Todd Webb and Eliot Porter, where she documented the slits in the canyon, the way the shadows would fall onto the smooth cliff sides, and the open sky beckoning behind. She used what she saw as inspiration and sought to capture the visceral reaction she had when faced with these moments.

Her archetypal V, was always a fascination of hers and a motif that also appeared in her flowers, mountains, and New York cityscapes.

How does this work make you feel? Protected or constrained?

Summer Symposium - What do you think? Survey

From Patty Hasselbring:
The Suri Network Board of Trustees is already busy planning the 2016 Summer Symposium. You might not be aware....but the Symposium is open to anyone, Suri Network member or not, alpaca owner or not, huacaya or Suri owner....anyone who is interested in alpacas and looking for top quality education!

If you are not familiar with the Suri Network's Summer Symposium, it is an educational conference of first-rate quality! This year we had three days packed with education from national and international experts in topics ranging from parasitology to camelid nutrition to marketing your farm, animals, and products. Intensive hands-on workshops allowed attendees to learn FAMACHA scoring, how to prepare and read their own fecals, perform acupuncture and massage on alpacas, and how to use both genotype and phenotype for breeding decisions. Our Product Design Committee taught every kind of fiber art imaginable, from crocheting to weaving to felting. All in all, it was a fabulous educational event! You'd spend thousands to attend these seminars individually.

We'd love to get your input on this quick survey! And we hope to see you - member or not - at the 2016 Summer Symposium!
